Being Thankful ~ A Song of Thanks

God’s people are called to be thankful. As a Christian, our thankfulness should come out as we sing, as we call upon the Lord, and as we tell others about what Jesus has done for us. A failure to do these things may indicate that we aren’t truly thankful…

A Focused Life ~ Being a Church Member

Here’s the last thing you need to know if you want to live a focused life; you’ve got to be a church member. No, I’m not talking about making sure your name is added to some list of members in a church. I’m talking about being a true church member…

A life out of focus is a life that is without meaning and purpose. When the people in a church are not focused, the church will also be out of focus. This is the fourth message in this series on how to have a focused life; this week looks at the necessity for followers of Jesus to be joyful!

A Praying Church

How often do you tell someone that you will pray for them? How often do you feel like you know how to pray for someone, especially when there is no specific request? Well, our God doesn’t want us unaware of how to pray in these situations. So, He had Paul write a letter, and in that letter Paul tells us how to pray.

A Sacrificial Church

For a church to be focused outward, looking for ways to connect and engage with the community, it must become a sacrificial church. That means that the people who make up the church must become sacrificial people. Paul has something to say about sacrifice in his letter to the church in Rome.
